My husband and I, sons, daughters-in-law and four grandchildren ages 3 - 7, had a great week at the Old Barn. We were warmly welcomed by Mrs Richardson - and her friendly dogs! Scones and jam left for our arrival. Very spacious house, loads of character and everything we required - very comfortable beds and non-stop hot water. The wee ones were supRead moreer-excited with their holiday-house and loved visiting all the animals - every day! A great base for visiting the surrounding area Hide

Great location for visiting Blackpool, Fleetwood and the surrounding area. Lovely rural setting with animals close by, ideal for the kids. The cottage was well set up for families, with plenty of space and great open plan kitchen dining space which worked well for two families eating together. Would recommend and stay again.

We had a lovely stay at The Old Barn at Bells Farm. The property is spacious and comfortable. 5 minute walk to the pub, shop, chip shop and Thai takeaway. The thai kitchen also serves the pub restaurant and the food was amazing. Weve said that we would definitely look to stay again. Please be mindful that this is a working farm and dogs are allowedRead more to run free. Whilst the dogs were friendly, and got on well with our dogs, there was a bit of dog poo around the grounds Hide

The house is lovely, big and in a beautiful place. The owner that lives in the house opposite is so lovely and helpful. I stayed there with my husband and our two dogs and my elderly partners and there dog, its a great place for dogs but there is a lot of other dogs and other animals about so if your dog isnt sociable that might be a problem.

The property was ideally located for our holiday. Very comfortable and warm for wet and windy autumn weather. Drying clothes was easy! However the enclosed garden/patio was a small concrete area which was not ideal for our dog and a couple of the bedrooms had sloping roof which were not apparent from the photos.
